Rethinking Bretton Woods | Sat, Sep 13, 2008
The comprehensive Doha Review Conference, which addresses each source of financing for development, as well as their interrelationship, offers an opportunity to explore how a human rights perspective can enhance and be advanced through the realization of FFD commitments in respective sources of financing.
The workshop will contribute to the formulation of concrete recommendations to operationalize human rights commitments, the right to development, and the relationship between human rights and development into the objectives of Financing for Development Review Conference and its follow-up process. It will also allow OHCHR to contribute to advocacy efforts in the Doha preparatory process through articulating linkages between the FFD agenda and human rights.
